This 90 year old villa has been completely renovated by us and transformed into the warm and cosy Hostel Costel. There are 3 shared bedrooms and one private room besides various common areas (living, chill-lounge, garden, etc.). Situated on the riverbanks our location is close to the historic city-center, campus area and all the party places. If you are just passing by or staying longer this is the best place to start your trip through Timisoara/Romania!

As far as the booking goes, please write an email to office@hostel-costel.ro, also write directly there if you need more info. I can tell you allready that the private room is booked on 26th. Have a nice day and a great trip ! Hope to see you :) Spiri
